Wisdom of the Mute

Posted: February 18, 2017 in wisdom

Mistaking etiquette for subterfuge
misunderstood intentions lying in tatters at my feet.

My hands palms up empty
was it something I said?

My actions are blameless
my inertia invites censure.

I will get up and I will come to you with no expectations
the fear I cannot leave behind may undermine my mission.

Accepting the inevitable is another form of bravery
failure was always an option.

I could try to keep talking until you understand me
yet I know honesty is best revealed in silence.

How hard it is to be quiet for silence is also subjective
we read into it what we ourselves are writing.

I must speak up if I want my story told
and if no one hears I will summon the wisdom of the mute.

Hiroshima August 6, 1945

there goes the neighborhood

forget it let’s dance

just one last whirl then we’ll pay the piper

just one lost world and we’ll do it again
